So Dan...is it safe to assume your coming down for the Reedy race if you have been working on a spool?

It is gold that I'll be down for Reedy
Pete may come down also the only problem is graduation(i'm suprised too)
I am trying to come down before Reedy also to have a fun weekend down there but not sure of dates yet.
I am hoping to have the spool this weekend for the EVO the 414/04 parts are done

Whats the difference between the SSG carbon bits and the normal carbon bits that were previously the only hop up options?

SSG carbon parts are said to be more resistant to Ultra violet lights where overtime it might soften the regular carbon chassis.

But I seriously doubt that it is really that much better then the regular carbon chassis. It's more of "wow" factor than actual function I think

If you look faster then you must be faster it's all a psychological game grasshopper.
Same as painting your shell with a fast paint job

Mike, I don't think you need to do that. Mine is working fine without it.

Peter and Dan got me all worried about my shock towers so I kept checking them at the tcs race. I didn't have a problem with them but one of my friends cars was pretty bad handling and I put it on the tweak setup and it was all screwy and I loosened the shock towers and held them in place and the car tweaked much better. So I guess what I am saying is shoe goo might be the ticket.................

No stress just breathe with me now innnnnnn ouuuuuut innnnn ouuuuut
I don't worry over them at all once set they remain the same if you are worried use Ling's suggestion put a countersunk screw in the hole until tight do not countersink though to remain TCS eligible

The small end of the countersink is the same, the large end is larger so it will lock it into place just not sit flush with the graphite plates
